Journey into the soul of a woman betrayed by her famed husband, philosopher Karl Marx.

Photo by Melissa Segal and Design Clara Francesca

Manifesting Mrs. Marx is a biographical non-biography. Jenny Marx is subverting the telling of the story of Jenny Marx by another, to tell the story of Jenny Marx herself. It is about a woman trapped inside history books. It is an homage to all people trapped inside their bodies, trapped inside the delusion of what society tells them their limitations must be, trapped inside the body of a man, trapped inside the body of who she once was: ostentatious stratification. We witness the character's birth and destruction, endured through the psychosis of her trauma and times.

The writer invites you into a genre of "theatre jazz: where the stage is highly self-aware".

Created by Clara Francesca, with abundant love and support from fellow artists, colleagues, mentors, friends and family!
